. after all, harry truman was franklin roosevelt's last vice president. most historians of the new deal stop typically in 1938 or 39. 38 was the year of the last major new deal piece of domestic legislation passed. the fair labor standards act that gave us the minimum wage and a 40 hour week. 1939 of course was the year the second world war began in europe, and some historians of course go as far as 1945, tearing through the age of roosevelt himself. the great historian david kennedy does that in his book, freedom from fear. but i thought to continue through to the truman administration, not just because harry truman had been part of the roosevelt era, but because by continuing up until 1952, 53, we can see some features of modern reality that might have remained somewhat obscure it to in particular. the first concerns the layering of fear in american life. now, fear is generated by circumstances that go beyond those of ordinary risk. life is full of risk. we buy a home, we hope it goes up in value. until recently we always thought it went up in value. we married. half of marriages

scene theory? how unusual is this? >> it's very rare. at least my ability to find it. in the harry oakes case in which the former king of england was involved, they actually did take a class, the person they wanted to frame grabbed the glass and then entered it into evidence. by the time the trial came out this was revealed. but very few instances of actually framing. i find instances where a suicide, at it surreptitiously arranged murder. >> a crime scene where the criminal staged the crime scene, but also crime scenes where the police have examined the crime scene and decided that it was staged, just simply on the basis of looking at it, there's something about it that says, ooh, this isn't right in the macdonald case, it was a flower pot and a coffee table. these two physical objects seemed to just radiate the fact that this man had lied. coffee table it turned out was knocked over by one of the mp investigators. the coffee table, but how do you know if you walk into a room, whether the room has been staged to look in a certain way so you'll come to some conclusion? maybe this i
